It's Only Day Three

So, we're on Day 3 of the 30 Days of [Blank].  For those of you who are doing this, how's it going?

Recap: I've decided my 30 days are 30 Day of Working Out.  So far I've stuck with it...all THREE days.  Whoa, I mean, I've really exerted myself--in THREE days.  Yesterday, however, I really, really didn't want to do anything.  It was day.  We were lazy (except WM cleaned out the garage), but I dug deep into my working out soul and found the inspiration and went for a short run.  VERY short--but hey, it counts!  I guess it wasn't really inspiration, more than guilt.  How could I fail on day two?  I'm kind of planning on you all keeping me other words, because of you, I have to stick with it...because I said I would.

My original plan was just to do yoga most days with an occasional walk and/or run thrown in there.  My plan was quickly derailed when I realized how sore yoga was going to make me.  Who would've thought? I'm not a huge fan of yoga but I really need to work on my flexibility, so I thought it would be a good option.

I am now feeling every muscle in my body.  It screeches in pain as I move.  Don't underestimate the power of yoga--and I'm not talking about all that mental well-being hog-wash--I can't "center" when I've got kids doing the poses with me or running in with a problem or telling me that Mickey Mouse is over or (my favorite) hanging from me as I do the downward dog.  I'm just saying yoga is harder on the bod than it looks.

So, I've renamed this little project.  Here are some of my new names:

30 Days of Pain
30 Days of Wanting to Eat Everything in Sight
30 Days of Falling Asleep While Standing
30 Days of Laughing at a 2-year-old do Yoga Poses
30 Days of This Better Be Worth It

Hmmm, do you have any to add?

Happy Monday!  

I must now get off the couch--it's a 5 minute process.

3 days, you are 10% of the way there.
I need to do Yoga. Does Wii Fit Yoga count?

On the pain. Just remember the definition of pain.

Pain is what weakness feels like as it leaves the body.

Feel beter? I thought so.

That is: Noo! I don't wanna, you can't make me. Oh wait, no one is making me so in that case I guess I'll do it but still kind of hate it.
